Deliver subpar services at extraordinary costs long enough and the masses will accept that normal and attack those who expect excellence. At 40k a year taxes I expect more. As an example it is actually now cheaper for us to get a non resident glen rock train station sticker and park there

  1. Wow, add to the fact your federal taxes probably just jumped by over $9,900 given $10,000 SALT deduction limit, and those $40K in property taxes don’t make much sense, do they?

  2. Oh we now was big Brother is watching us. Right ‘ ??

  3. I don’t understand about the sort. Please explain. $10,000 Huh???

  4. To the mayor and council. As a village taxpayer We would like all village owned vehicles to be Plackerd and numbered immediately. We have experience and witnessed a few vehicles that have not done so. We need an inspection and investigation on this situation. Thank you yours truly taxpayers of the village group.

  5. If you pay $40,000 in property taxes as per the author above, you are now limited to only a $10,000 state & local deduction. All else equal, and assuming a 33% marginal federal rate, that implies 33% federal income tax on $30,000 of additional gross income no longer shielded by the property tax deduction… and that’s not even including higher NJ state tax and local property tax increases & parking permit increases assuming our friend is a commuter.

  6. OK ‘ we Conducted an investigation on those vehicles.
    1, A brand new white Chevrolet Tahoe .

    2, New were white Ford explore,
    Those two vehicles do not belong to the police department or the fire department.
    We would like to know what Department they belong too.

  7. Wow very impressed . Looks like the cat is out of the bag, good job eye in the sky!

  8. i have seen the tahoe lurking around homes waiting to write up fines…or was it the black tahoe…either way if the town just picked up the leaves and did its job we would save on their salaries and cars.

    Just do it right Ridgewood and if its too hard find someone who can do it right!!!!

    Reminds me of a famous movie quote: “In my book, you either do it right, or you get eliminated!”

    Just substitute “Village of Ridgewood” for “Teldar Paper” and you see the same types of inefficiencies, waste and lack of accountability. What we need is for the taxpayers to rise up and say “It’s *our* money. You’re a civil servant. You work for *us*. Either you serve us or you get eliminated. We’re not going to stand for this bullsh$t anymore!”
